4.1 Helping AI become "intelligent" » Video

This video describes the AI AlphaStar's success in learning to play complex videogames. The game, StarCraft II, includes a complicated element: human players - yet AlphaStar takes advantage of these experts to learn from them, acquiring the humans' most effective solutions. Like any other player, the AI is faced with only imperfect, or partial, knowledge of the world - and yet it learns to beat average human opponents.

In another DeepMind project, researchers reported being able to teach the AI a physical sense of objects - properties like mass and density - through exploration of how objects responded to certain perturbations.
